First Community Financial Bank


Our History in Joliet

After watching mega banks expand into Will County and swallow up the local banks, a group of local business people saw a need for a locally-owned and managed bank where people were the priority. Many others shared their feeling and in late 2002, a formal feasibility study confirmed that the market would support a true community bank.

After working through the regulatory process and gaining the support of hundreds of investors, the bank was capitalized and opened for business in the spring of 2004.
